Shower control was broken and had clearly been for a while. Aircon was not working correctly. There is not enough lifts to service the volume of guests. The stair carpet only went up as far as the 3rd floor and then it was dangerous stone steps. The TV did not display a guide showing what programme was on now or next. Annoying. Very disappointing for a Radisson.

Great location , good size room but I didn’t like the blue carpet.Very good breakfast but only one coffee machine so it goes without saying you always have to queue for a coffee.

Overall great experience. The building works next door made for a disappointing view, however the rooms, staff and food all made up for this.

Limited Parking

The car park is tiny only fitting about 15 cars in a hotel that has 21 floors! Not very useful for large cars or vans either as the spaces are tiny. There are other car parks nearby however.

Good hotel, great location

Pros: The view!
Cons: The building is a little like a warren - you wonder if you are going the right way yo breakfast!
Location: Located in Cardiff Central and able to walk to Cardiff Bay. It is right by the train station, shopping, dinning and evening entertainment all close
Lovely hotel, only reason for 4 star rating on Hotel condition is it is currently undergoing renovations. We received a complimentary upgrade to a room with a brilliant view. The lovely room and view added a special touch to the weekend which we both really appreciated and enjoyed. The room overlooked Cardiff Central train station but there was no noise disturbance. Thank you Radisson Blu, and Cardiff, for a lovely weekend.
